City format

Many settlements can just get a stubby entry, but the Six Cities, Valorim province capitals, and so on, can have a lot more said about them. Do we/should we have a standard format for cities? I left several obvious sections out of this entry, like Population, because I had little to say about them. This is the first city article, so let's get the format set before we do any more. --- Slartucker 14:48, 1 February 2006 (CST)

See Krizsan

The entry for Krizsan (the city, not the province) has some kind of structure to it. It's not set in stone, but it might give a hint on what else could be included... Arancaytar | Send Reply! --- That is not dead which can eternal lie... 16:44, 1 February 2006 (CST)

Aha, didn't see that. Krizsan is basically structured according to what's relevant for Krizsan. That's fine. I guess I was just noticing the massive amount of structure in the Avernum and Empire articles -- and there will never be more than a small handful of nations, whereas with many cities, a standard format might increase ease of use.
Actually, reading through it more, it looks like an awful lot of this information is about the province and not really the city at all -- far more info than there is in the province article... --- Slartucker 17:37, 1 February 2006 (CST)
Yes, I just remembered it's one of the "legacy" articles from the old encyclopedia, where there was far less structure. When I have time, I'll try to reorder and wikify it a bit. Meanwhile, I'll tag it. Arancaytar | Send Reply! --- That is not dead which can eternal lie... 00:46, 2 February 2006 (CST)
